What is MSC Pool?


In a traditional mobile network, one RNC/BSC can be connected to one MSC only. In the MSC Pool networking mode, one RNC/BSC can be connected to multiple MSCs. Advantages: Multiple MSCs share the load of a network. This design helps to improve the utilization of resources of the core network and saves investment on equipment. Data can be backed up amongst the MSCs to make the MSC pool more disaster tolerant and improve the reliability of the network. Inter-MSC location update times and signaling traffic on the C/D interface are reduced. Inter-MSC handovers are reduced and subscribers' conversation quality is improved.

MSC Pool Conceptions


NRI A network resource identifier (NRI) is used to identify an MSC node serving a specified MS/UE. Contained in TMSI from bit 23 to bit 14.

Serving MSC will not change when moving in pool area,save C/D interface traffic. The implementation of the MSC Pool function depends on the TMSI reallocation function enabled by the MSC in the MSC Pool, including: Allocation of TMSI during location update Allocation of TMSI during service access SET MAPACCFG: IFALTMSILU=YES, IFALTMSISA=YES;

Null NRI It is a special NRI in the same structure as normal NRI. During inter-MSC subscriber migration in the MSC Pool, a null-NRI is used to instruct the RNC/BSC to reselect an MSC to service the MS/UE. When RNC/BSC receives Null NRI,it will send message to a valid MSC based on arithmetic. A null-NRI is unique in an MSC Pool. ADD NRIMSC: DESC="NULL NRI", NRIV=10, MSCNO=K'861390801, VLRNO=K'861390801, MSCNM="SX1", NNRI=TRUE;

Non-broadcast LAI It is a special LAI with the same format as common LAI. ADD LAISAI: SAI="460004444", LAISAINAME="Non-broadcast", MSCN="861390801", VLRN="861390801", NONBCLAI=YES, NONBCLAIT=HVLR; During inter-MSC subscriber migration in the MSC Pool, it is used to trigger the MS/UE to perform location update immediately after completing the current service procedure. Each MSC in Pool has a unique Non-broadcast LAI;Each MSC in Pool must configure all Nonbroadcast LAIs of other MSCs in Pool because the target MSC determines the address of original MSC based on the Non-broadcast LAI and obtains the subscriber information(MAP_SEND_IDENTIFICATION) from the original MSC during inter-MSC subscriber migration in the MSC Pool.

Example: ADD LAISAI: SAI="460004444", LAISAINAME="Non-broadcast", MSCN="861390801", VLRN="861390801", NONBCLAI=YES, NONBCLAIT=HVLR; ADD LAIGCI: SAI="460005555", LAIGCINAME="Non-broadcast", MSCN="861390802", VLRN="861390802", NONBCLAI=YES; ADD LAIGCI: SAI="460006666", LAIGCINAME="Non-broadcast", MSCN="861390803", VLRN="861390803", NONBCLAI=YES;

MSC Pool Conceptions


MGW to Provide the A-Flex Function When MSC Pool is applied,BSC should support A-Flex function,if BSC can not support this function,Huawei MGW can provide A-Flex Proxy function to enable BSC to access MSC Pool without upgrade. Default MSC When MS registers in adjacent MSC outside pool,this MSC just needs to address Default MSC in pool to get subscriber information by original LAI of the subscriber,because LAI can not map a unique MSC in pool,by this way,MSC outside pool does not need to develop new functions but just sends message to default MSC. Default MSC then finds the previous serving MSC of this subscriber by NRI in TMSI,obtains subscriber information and provides to MSC outside pool. CNID It is the ID of an MSC node. Its format is: MCC+MNC+CN-ID The value of CN-ID ranges from 0 to 4095. A CN-ID uniquely identifies an MSC in the MSC Pool.

Load Balancing
1, When an MS/UE initiates a service based on IMSI/IMEI, the RNC/BSC selects a valid MSC according to the capacity proportion of each valid MSC in the MSC Pool.Then MSC assigns TMSI containing NRI. When an MS/UE initiates a service based on TMSI,RNC/BSC will directly route it to the serving MSC based on NRI in TMSI

MOD CNNODE

2,If paging is based on IMSI and without NRI information,RNC/BSC will record a temporary mapping between IMSI and MSC,to ensure send back the acknowledge to MSC. RNC/BSC A-flex function is mostly provided by MGW in current netowrk.

Handover
Handover Within the MSC Pool Area As any LAI in the MSC Pool could be served by all MSCs in Pool, only intra-MSC handover is performed in pool. Therefore,compared with traditional networking, the number of inter-MSC handovers can be reduced, and the quality of calls can be improved.
Handover to the MSC Pool Area MSCs outside the Pool can use any MSC in the Pool as the target MSC during handover. Handover out of the MSC Pool Area The adjacent MSC is set to the destination MSC of MSCs in the MSC Pool during handover (it is the same as the handover configuration for the MSC on the present network).

Subscriber Migration Between MSCs


Operators can trigger subscriber migration between MSCs in the MSC Pool through O&M commands. For example, if one MSC needs to be upgraded,operators can transfer all the subscriber data in this MSC to other MSCs in the MSC Pool before upgrade. Or adjust the traffic load between MSCs to make they averagely share the load. There are two ways to migrate subscribers. 3GPP TS 23.236 protocol&Inter-office E interface redirection.

Subscriber Migration Between MSCs


1, Configure the status of MSC on MSCs and RNC/BSCs as OFF-LOAD. 2, When MS under off-load MSC initiates a service, the MSC allocates a TMSI containing nullNRI.The MSC also instructs the MS/UE that the current LAI is the Non-broadcast LAI. 3, After the MS finishes the current service, the Non-broadcast LAI enables the MS to trigger immediate location update. 4, When receiving a location update message containing null-NRI, the RNC/BSC selects a valid MSC according to the proportion capacity in the MSC Pool and routes the service to the selected MSC. The selected MSC allocates a TMSI containing its own NRI for the MS. During registration, the selected MSC determines the original MSC where the MS/UE is registered according to the Non-broadcast LAI carried by the MS/UE and obtains subscriber data (IMSI and unused encryption parameters) from the original MSC. In this way, an MS/UE is transferred from one MSC to another. 5,After migration is completed, stop migration through the O&M command and restore the MSC status on the MSCs and RNC/BSCs as NORMAL.

A-Flex Function Proxy on MGW


The 3GPP TS 23.236 protocol requires the BSC in the MSC Pool supporting the A-flex function. To solve the problem that BSC in exsiting network can not support this function, Huawei MGW can provide the A-Flex function proxy No BSC upgrade required MSC server SPC and count is invisible for BSC,MGW provides single signal point to BSC MGW provides the function to identify MSC in pool and realizes load balancing according to proportion capacity configuration. To achieve this purpose,two modes can be used: M3UA Agent Networking & M3UA Forward Networking

MSC servers in the MSC Pool use a common SPC AA connecting with BSCs; MGW adopts the M3UA agent mode and shares the same SPC AA with MSC servers; MGW is divided into several VMGWs,the number is the same as that of MSCs in pool. Each VMGW is registered in an MSC server. The MSCe SPC configured on the BSC is AA. The algorithm for the MGW to select the MSC server is the same as that for the BSC,based on proportion capacity configured in MGW.

ADD N7DSP: INDEX=0, NAME="BSC1", NI=NATB, DPC=H'10b, OSPINDEX=0, NETTYPE=MSCPOOl; ADD N7DSP: INDEX=1, NAME="BSC1_1", NI=NATB, DPC=H'10b, OSPINDEX=1, NETTYPE=MSCPOOl; ADD N7LKS: INDEX=0, NAME="TO_BSC1", DSPIDX=0; ADD MTP2LNK: LNKNO=0, LNKNAME="TO_BSC1", IFBT=E32, IFBN=6, E1T1N=2, STRTTS=18, ENDTS=18, SPFBN=1, SUBBN=0, SUBBCID=0, LNKTYPE=MTP364K; ADD N7LNK: INDEX=0, NAME="TO_BSC1", LKSIDX=0, SLC=2, SNDSLC=2, TESTCODE=170, MTP2NO=0; Page 40

Evolution to Pool
Step 4 Add related configurations of A-interface circuit management
ADD ACPOOL: ACN=0, BC=SFR1-1&SFR2-1&SFR3-1&SHR1-1&SHR2-1&SHR3-1&DFR-1&DHR-1; ADD BSC: BSCID=0, BSCN="BSC 1", DPC=H'10b, NI=NATB, ACN=0, MEN=ON; ADD AIETG: TGN=0, TGM="BSC1", DPC=H'10b, NI=NATB; ADD AIETKC: TGN=0, TIDS=64, TIDNUM=32, CIC=64;

Then add BSC1 into MSC Server 2 and 3 by the same one,after configuration,MGW1 should active the VMGWs that are connecting to MSC Server 2 and 3.
